2012 CEDEV Summer Institute:  Sustainability and Community Development

The annual CEDEV Summer Institute will be held May 14 - 16, 2012 at the Days Inn Penn State in State College, Pennsylvania, home of the main campus of Penn State University. 

This year, the Community and Economic Development (CEDEV) Summer Institute participants will gain better understanding of community sustainability, how to prepare communities to talk about sustainability and how to assess a community's readiness for sustainability.  Practitioners working with varying sized communities throughout the United States will share their experiences.  Participants will have ample opportunity to network with community development practitioners, professional graduate students, alum, and faculty of the Penn State CEDEV graduate program, and others.  Attendees will learn the tools necessary to develop an action plan for working with a community to develop a viable plan for community sustainability.

Information for lodging, registration fees, scholarship opportunities, poster exhibition, and more is provided on the registration and program websites . Please contact Julie Patosky, CEDEV Administrative Coordinator, for additional information at (814) 863-5884 or
